Call for papers

Robotics Science and Systems (RSS) brings together researchers working on algorithmic and mathematical foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and analysis of robotic systems. The conference is single-track, and the final program will be the result of a thorough review process, to give attendees an opportunity to see the best research in all areas of robotics. The program includes invited talks, as well as oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. The main conference is followed by two days of workshops and tutorials. All papers presented at the main conference will be published in online proceedings. Selected papers will be invited for submission to a special issue of International Journal of Robotics Research and a special issue of Autonomous Robots.

Topic Areas

Papers containing original and unpublished work are solicited in all areas of robotics, including (but not limited to) the following: kinematics, dynamics, control, planning, manipulation, human-robot interaction, human-centered systems, field robotics, distributed systems, medical robotics, biological robotics, mechanisms, robot perception, mobile systems, mobility, estimation, and learning.

Paper Format

Submissions may be up to 8 pages in length, excluding references. Reviewing for RSS 2015 is double-blind.
